It wouldn’t be fall without something pumpkin. These Pumpkin Mini Cakes are the perfect fall treat. We used the same Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting that we used in our Pumpkin Cupcakes in a Jar, and it turned this pumpkin-y treat from great to fabulous.
How to Make Pumpkin Mini Cakes
You will need:
- Pumpkin Cake Mix
- Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring – Orange
- Wilton Whoopie Pie baking pan
- Decorating Bags
- Wilton #2D Decorating Tip
For the cake part of the Pumpkin Mini Cakes we used Pillsbury’s Perfectly Pumpkin Premium Cake Mix. It turned out great, very pumpkin-y. The batter was the color of a traditional spice cake so we added orange food coloring to batter so the cake would look more striking.
We used this Wilton Whoopie Pies pan to make these cute mini cakes.
They are a great alternative to a traditional cupcake!
For the frosting we used our Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting – it is super delicious. You can find all the directions you’ll need to make it right here.
Using a Wilton 2D decorating tip we swirled on the Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting in a rosette pattern. This is easy to do with this particular tip. Just start in the center and swirl the frosting in circles until you get to the outside of the cupcake top.
These Pumpkin Mini Cakes are super delicious and perfect for any of the Fall Holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas.
